Revisit Over 200 Beautiful Moments In American Culture Like We Have Never Seen Before

Ann Margaret 1960s

There’s no topping the Hollywood legend. The onscreen chameleon has been the sweet brunette, the foxy redhead, and the blonde bombshell. 

Her sexy, throaty singing voice had the public referring to her as the 'female Elvis’ and her love for motorcycles earned her a daredevil reputation. 

The stranger the better at Studio 54

People came out in so many different kinds of get-ups that it was soon difficult to differentiate between what was real and what was fake. This man was rumored to have just left the hospital after facial reconstruction, others say it was just a self-made mask.

The photographer Hasse Persson later commented that he didn't know if this 'get up' was a genuine injury or not but he understands why this guy was let through the front door: "The whole place was like a happening, Steve Rubell was looking for the right mixture to make this a magic night. The place existed for about 1,000 nights, from 1977 to 1980, and every night was magical.” Simply put, at Studio 54 'odd' is good.

John Belushi, Keith Richards, and James Brown

Friendships were made within the walls of Studio 54. Here is actor and original Saturday Night Live cast member John Belushi with Keith Richards and the creator of funk and godfather of soul James Brown. James Brown was one of the artist who performed live at Studio 54. He recorded his double album 'Live in New York" in 1980 at the club. There is also a film recording of Brown's Studio 54 performance. It has received various releases, most notably is the 2008 DVD Double Dynamite.
